In one of the hardest, toughest most bruising fastest nights of pure Speedway action at Perth Motorplex Speedway Kwinana Beach *Brooke Tatnell formally NSW now the USA won 2013/2014 WA Sprintcar Championship :
SUNDAY~DECEMBER~ 2013 :*
BROOKE Tatnell is the new WA Sprintcar champion after winning the epic 30-lap feature race at the Perth Motorplex on Saturday night. **After a series of aborted attempts that sidelined some of the major contenders Tatnell held off a very fast finishing Cameron Gessner and Shaun Bradford.*
In only his second drive back with the ‘old band’ – the professional Krikke Motorsport operation, Tatnell showed a cool head in heavy lapped traffic late in the race, surviving challenges from both Bradford and Gessner.*
It took some time to get the race going with a handful of restarts. Kye Scroop was the first casualty, not making it past the first corner and a few moments later Jake Beard-Miller, Damian Blacka and Lee Nash were all involved in an incident on the main straight.*
The next restart was caused after Trent Pigdon and Daniel Harding came together on the back straight and on the next attempt David Priolo had contact with Jason Kendrick which then involved Carl Dowling for an open red light situation.*
Luke Dillon, who had won the last three rounds of the **WA** series finished fourth with Brad Maiolo taking fifth and was followed by Ian Loudoun, Jamie Maiolo, Shane Norris, Cale Sotiroff, Sheldon Brady, Matt Young, Ryan Lancaster, Daniel Harding, Jason Pryde and Kent Roberts.*
“It was definitely a stop-start affair in the first few laps,” Tatnell said, relating it to constant stoppages of public transport.*
While his rivals showed their intentions a few times Tatnell said he had a bit in reserve but admitted it was tough in heavy traffic.*
He paid tribute to long-term family friend John Day who is still in hospital.*I said I was going to come here and win this for him and hopefully we can get back to the hospital tomorrow and see him.”*
Gessner said he really wanted to win the title race.“I am happy and sad at the same time, it was a hell of a race.”*
Bradford finally grabbed a podium in the Darren Allen-owned #67 machine.“It was going really good at the start,” Bradford said. “I was just waiting and biding my time and then all of a sudden I had sparks every time hit the brake so I stopped using them as much as I could which made it hard.*
“With the run I have been having I was just lucky to finish.” *
Round seven of the AHG Sprintcar Series will be held at Quit Collie Speedway on December 14. *
